Life would be pretty great if it weren't for nerves and hormones.
Some Christian people say you should just be good, do the right thing, act graciously, no matter what happens with your nerves and hormones.
Obviously, they have never been afflicted with abnormal nerves and hormones.
You pray, you cry, you condemn yourself, you wonder what is WRONG with you. You get up in the morning determined to be nice to everyone, to hold it together, to rest in the Lord. But on those days, it just doesn't matter. You WILL find yourself crying over what the kids said or the mess on the kitchen counter or the overwhelming pile of mail... unless you take to your bed, in which case you will find yourself crying for being lazy and worthless.
And somebody will say, "If you would just exercise more," or "If you would just take Paxil," or "If you would just calm yourself down." And that just isn't helpful.
Sometimes you feel like God has abandoned you. You know that He is supposedly your strength, and you can't figure out why it isn't working. You read the Psalms and resonate with the one that says, "How long, O Lord?"
You understand why your mother did some of the crazy things she did, and you feel sorry for her.
Life would be just about perfect without nerves and hormones. I think there will be no nerves or hormones in Heaven.
